Learn to Swim

The Napier Aquatic Centre's Swim School is a nationally accredited QSSQuality Swim School (Quality Swim School) that provides professional swim instruction with classes catering for ages, from 6 months through to Adults. Our Swim School Instructors are all qualified through Swimming New Zealand, and work closely with Water Safety New Zealand. Most of our classes are intentionally kept to limited numbers to ensure that you or your child receives maximum attention from your instructor.
